The Formech 450DT is easy to operate with a touch screen display to control it’s four heating zones. This machine is suitable for forming sheets measuring 18″ x 12″. It does a great job with materials up to 0.25” thick. The maximum depth of draw of 7″.
A graphically driven display with easy to understand icons provide intuitive control, while a 20-program memory allows users to conveniently store and recall projects. The 450DT offers today’s students, designers and inventors the latest user experience with industry standard control technology.
Quartz Heaters with Variable Standby
Quartz heaters have the benefit of a rapid response and high efficiency resulting in time and energy savings.
Four heating zones and quartz heaters provide rapid heat response with a greater range of control to form challenging shapes and materials
Vacuum & Release
After the formed part has cooled, air is forced between the mould and the sheet to help it release.
